We have been to Virginia Beach for several years; we came across Waterman's this year. The food and service are great!! You can dine indoors or outdoors; both provide great atmosphere. You must try the Orange Crush drink! We ate here 3 out of the 5 nights we stayed. Definitely will return here on our next visit. Lela was the... More

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner on Wednesday evening while we were on vacation. It was croweded, but we were seated almost immediately. There is indoor and outdoor seating right on the boardwalk. We sat inside, but right by a big window facing the beach. It was beautiful. The atmosphere is great. It's one of those restaurants where... More

Waterman's is a pretty big place, without necessarily looking like that from the outside. It provides opportunities for couples as well as groups, with outdoor and indoor spaces. Although it can take a while to get a table at peak times, service is very good, the menu offering a selection of casual fare suitable for its beach boardwalk location, and... More

We went there late (around 9 after our dolphin watching cruise). The service was great and loved the valet parking. A few in our party got ribs and they were excellent. The younger kids liked their food well enough (and that's saying a lot since they're pretty picky). It wasn't too busy that late and we didn't have to wait.... More

I use TripAdvisor a lot and hope that readers will consider this review. We were in VA Beach and stayed at the Sheraton for a week. Based on TripAdvisor reviews and accessibility from the Atlantic Ave shuttle bus, we tried Waterman's. We got there during Happy Hour and the drinks were fairly priced and quite good. But, I ordered fried... More

I tried yellow fin tuna for the first time (in a delicious wrap) and loved it and my husband had the crab cakes and Orange Crush drink (which was also delicious). Nice kids menu, great service, clean, inviting atmosphere and great views.

We were here the night before just for drinks (orange crush is a must!) and took a look at the menu and decided to come back and give it a try. We weren't disappointed! The seafood was delicious and the view was amazing! We will be back!

Thoughtfully designed oceanfront restaurant with excellent food, drink and staff. It may be better for young children at lunch. Moderately priced for lunch or dinner - you must try their She Crab Soup, any burger and their infamous Orange Crush...Yum! Early dinner will assure no waiting - valet parking after about 6:00pm. We give it an A and a big... More

In season always a wait - 20 mins tonight for us, valet parking. At bar orange crush & ruby red crush are the specials. Hot crab dip excellent starter. "Just Seafood" combo good grilled platter. Stuffed shrimp and special burger w/crab cake on top excellent. Hot fudge brownie for dessert shared by five. Jessica gave great service.

This is a must-go when you visit Virginia Beach. We took the girls (ages 6 and 9) to the boardwalk and stopped here for dinner first. The wait was 20 minutes for an outdoor patio seat (shaded) and we spent it at the beach bar, sampling their specialty drinks "Orange Crush" and "Ruby Red Crush" ... a great way to... More
